Can images be copied by right-clicking?

Right-clicking has been disabled on ALL Traditional Blog and Hybrid Flash templates, for your protection!
The HTML5 templates allow the user to enable or disable the right-click protection from within the sitezadmin > Edit Site Settings and Music > Edit General Settings/Colors area, within the ‘GENERAL SETTINGS’ section, by simply checking or unchecking the box for ‘Image Protection Enabled’
The Flexsitez Professional Photo Blog template can utilize one of many plugins available to help protect your images. We recommend this one:

Protect your WordPress site against right clicks, text selection, and image dragging.
We DO know that:
1) Safari for Mac has an "activity" window which lists every file that is downloaded. You can simply double click on the file in the list, and it will open that file in a new window, which does NOT have right click protection. There is absolutely no way to prevent this.
2) Anyone can take screenshots in any browser and crop images on their computer.
Basically, there will always be ways to take images off any website. We use the best systems possible to make it harder, but there is virtually no way to stop it. Adding watermarks to your actual images before uploading them is the best thing to alleviate this issue.
The iPhone and iPad mirrors available for the Generation II Hybrid Flash templates DO NOT support the watermark feature!!
For your protection, we strongly recommend that you manually add a watermark to ALL of your images, prior to upload, in order to prevent copying from the mirror!
